Can anyone help me with this question? I would appreciate it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A horse pulls a barge of mass 5000 kg along a canal using a rope 10 m long. The rope is attached to a point on the barge 2m from the bank. As the barge starts to move, the tension in the rope is 500 N. Calculate the barge's initial acceleration parallel to the bank.

Please explain hehe physics is not my strong side :D
